    Here's something you might find interesting: I believe Pepsi is orange-based, while Coke is lemon-based. I am not a huge Pepsi fan, but orange definitely tastes better in Pepsi (or Diet Pepsi) than it does in Coke, and lemon is good in Coke but pretty awful in Pepsi. (All that is just a matter of my opinion, of course.)

    Interesting, Todash. I do recall reading years ago that Pepsi stimulated some of the same taste buds that citrus juices stimulate, whereas Coke stimulated the same taste buds as cocoa products.

    I'm a bit of a Coca Cola fanatic, having been to World of Coca Cola in Atlanta and drinking the stuff all my life. I tried the raspberry coke and the vanilla root beer and both were excellent! I'm sure I'll be going back to try them all. I've got to get me one of these machines!
    Oh yeah, one of these machines would be an awesome thing to have. I love flavored pops, especially if it's vanilla or cherry!

    I first saw these in Chicago last year shopping. The only problem is that people spend a little too long making selections and backs up the whole drink dispensing process.

    We have a Pei-Wei here that has one. I was in one day when they had it opened and the different flavors are in cartridges (kind of like real big laser printer cartridges) that plug in and then I guess they have the soda water behind the wall.

    My local BK has one of them things. Not sure how many different flavors it offers, but I'd say it's at least a dozen.
